Clemson's offense seems fine so far in the post-Deshaun Watson era.

If you're a Clemson fan who was worried about the team's offensive abilities after the departure of Deshaun Watson, well, the first quarter of the team's game against Kent State has to calm your nerves at least a little bit.

In one quarter of play, Clemson scored three touchdowns - two on the ground and one through the air. The most notable score came on a 61-yard touchdown pass from Kelly Bryant to Deon Cain.

Check it out:

Bryant, so far, is 6-of-7 for 119 yards and a touchdown. Yes, it's Kent State - not Florida State - but this isn't a bad sign for Dabo Swinney's squad.
